I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

comment Different ways to execute a shell script
@Geek when you execute a script as a child process (the normal way), any variables and functions it defines (it's environment) go away when the process terminates. If you source the script, those variables and functions are created in the current environment; when the script finishes, the changes to the environment remain.
